Alexei Rakhmanov, president of United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), announced on 1 June that the yard will resume construction in 2018 of three Project 11356 frigates - Admiral Butakov, Admiral Istomin, and Admiral Kornilov - for the Baltic Fleet, state controlled media reports. Production was suspended in 2015 because of Ukraine's refusal to supply gas turbine engines for the vessels.
